Kitty Kelley updates Elizabeth Taylor bio

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Kitty Kelley has some new words for Elizabeth Taylor.

Simon & Schuster says Kelley’s unauthorized “Elizabeth Taylor: The Last Star” was reissued Friday as an e-book.

The new release includes an afterword that concludes with Taylor’s death last month. Kelley will donate proceeds to amfAR, the AIDS research organization Taylor helped found. The Taylor biography first came out in 1981.

Kelley is known for gossipy and unflattering takes on the famous, including Frank Sinatra and Nancy Reagan. Her afterword notes Taylor’s drug and alcohol problems and her ongoing romantic troubles over her last 30 years.

“While La Taylor might’ve found the content of the book and its afterword a bit cheeky,” Kelley said in a statement, “she couldn’t object to the proceeds going to amfAR in her memory.”
